Design of a submergible seadrome light universal type suitable for military use in all areas and for transportation by aircraft

Abstract

"This thesis was written in consideration of problems arising in present day use of battery operated seadrome lights. The information contained has been compiled to explain the development of a radically new design in seadrome lighting. Use of a selected single lighted strip is the basis of the design. The seadrome light described is a submergible type and is essentially a modification and combination of the 100 watt beacon lights, used with the Type B-2 portable field lighting set; and the American Gas Accumulator Company Portable Lighting Set PAM-2. The beacon was modified in that it was made waterproof and its base changed to accommodate a centrally placed lamp lead and a small rubber buoy. The PAM-2 seadrome set afforded only the underwater electric cable and generators. Ease and simplicity of transportation, operation, and maintenance are the essential qualities needed for the type of lighting equipment described. The requirements for rugged military type of equipment have been considered, and while the drawings and photographs included here do not show the optimum design of an underwater marker light, it is contended that the principle involved has merit"--Chapter I--Introduction, page 1.
